Police in Palm Beach, Florida, responded to a trespassing call at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on Thursday, authorities said.
The Palm Beach Police Department told media outlets on Thursday that the U.S. Secret Service contacted the office when a man refused to leave Trump’s resort.
“So it was it was a routine trespass complaint for us. And by routine, I don’t necessarily mean like routine for Mar-a-Lago, just there was nothing really out of the ordinary about it,” Cpt. Will Rothrock told Fox6.
Elaborating, he added, “At 8:08 this morning, we had a male subject that was stopped at one of the gates refusing to leave the property. We responded, spoke briefly with him, and he was issued a written warning for trespass and he left the area so there wasn’t an incident report or anything associated with it.”
Other details about the incident, including the identity of the male who trespassed, were not released by police. The Epoch Times has contacted the Secret Service for comment.
Police dispatch notes obtained by WFLA said that the man was located at the “south gate” of the sprawling Florida resort.
The former president has not issued a public comment about it. It’s unclear if Trump or former first lady Melania Trump were at his Mar-a-Lago residence at the time because the former president is slated to appear at a midterm campaign rally in Iowa later Thursday.
In early August, the FBI raided the former president’s home and seized boxes of documents, including allegedly classified materials. Trump has insisted that it was a politically motivated raid, while the Department of Justice has not brought any charges.
The incident comes about a week after an individual allegedly broke into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) home and assaulted her elderly husband, Paul, with a hammer, according to court documents. David DePape, 42, is accused of approaching Paul Pelosi while he was sleeping and demanding to know where the House speaker was.
Investigators added DePape had planned to break Nancy Pelosi’s kneecaps if she was home. Officials said she was in Washington at the time.
Questions have emerged about why DePape was able to gain access to the home of Pelosi, who is second in line to the presidency after the vice president, and why there were no security guards. On Wednesday, the U.S. Capitol Police issued a statement saying that it had access to security cameras at the Pelosi residence in San Francisco but did not monitor any unusual activity there until San Francisco police arrived on the scene.
Meanwhile, a Pelosi neighbor told The Epoch Times that she did not hear anything unusual on the morning of the hammer attack. “No, not a thing, and you know we were awake at that hour in the morning; my husband was awake. We didn’t even hear sirens,” neighbor Sally McNulty said.
